Aggrieved House of Representatives candidates of a faction of the Peoples Democratic Party have stormed the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission in Abuja to protest the continued delay to act on the Supreme Court judgment in respect of the rightful winners of the National Assembly seats in Anambra state in the 2015 general elections.

The protesters arrived INEC as early as 8am and took up positions at the entrance to the commission, chanting solidarity songs. Most of them displayed placards demanding that INEC issues their representatives certificates of return to resume at the National Assembly.

Speaking on behalf of other aggrieved candidates, Hon. Tony Office expressed dismay at the action of INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, in declining to grant them audience despite several letters seeking to meet with him. While alleging INEC bias, Office accused the former Acting Chairman of INEC, Amina Zakari, of being responsible for their plight.

He said the woman who is now a national commissioner led the affairs of INEC during the time when their names were struck out from the election list.

The protesters were prevented from gaining access to INEC premises and after about an hour, the leader of INEC security team asked their representative to come in and deliver their letter.
